They have the right to ask that person for their papers. That’s the first time I knew that it was even a possibility, but I didn’t know that that included my family and I. (4/5)

- — Reform Immigration FOR America (@RI4A)Fri, Jan 26 2018 17:00:37When I was 28, it was the first time I was able to go through a real hiring process, b/c of DACA. After 4 months, I made more than $170,000. I worked my ass off for commission; I became the #1 agent in LA. I was very satisfied materially, which I’ve never been in my life. (2/6)
- — Reform Immigration FOR America (@RI4A)Fri, Jan 26 2018 17:00:37After two years, when I extended my DACA, I thought to myself, ‘Is this really what I want to do? Use my freedom to make money?’ The answer was no. I wanted to use my DACA status fully, which means freedom. (3/6)

It took 2 months, & it really changed my perspective on how I viewed America. I felt a human connection w folks I met. During the trip, b/c I was biking, I had to rely on their generosity. (4/6)

But politicians, so-called smart people, they try to divide us. It’s not the fault of the immigrants, & it’s not the fault of people who live in the middle states, red states. (5/6)

One of the moments I wish I was documented was when my grandparents passed away. Not being able to say goodbye to the people that raised me & that I cared for the most was really hard. (2/4)
